Ask a question

The skill involved in antique chain making is breathtaking.

There are no visible solder joins in this beautiful late Victorian nine-carat yellow gold guard chain.

This intricate link is unmistakably English, yet unusual nevertheless. I don’t remember having this particular design before.

Wonderful on its own, it’s also ready to hang a favourite piece from its substantial original dog clip.

It’s long enough and heavy enough to sit well wrapped around the neck three times, too.
